The Physician of London Reviews (4)

  • This book and its predecessor Nicholas Cooke describe the life of a young man in the time of Shakespeare and the plague and political upheaval in England Sometimes hard to read the dialog forsooth, thee thou, etc , but a pretty good running story. [..]

  • While not an easy read, this book was quite captivating I recommend to intelligent readers who are up to the challenge of old English [..]

  • This is the second in Cowell s trilogy set around the early 1600 s in England Good, interesting, but a little less so than the first one Nicholas Cooke. [..]
